"The foreclosure crisis continues...
The foreclosure crisis for Florida and the nation has continued as a floodtide of sub-prime loans and unprecedented speculation in real estate combined to create a calamitous wave of home purchases that buyers could not afford and mortgages that borrowers could not pay...
Beginning in 2006, the number of foreclosures, including default notices, auction sales and bank repossessions, skyrocketed to more than 1.3 million nationally in 2006 and 2.2 million a year later, including 1.5 million home foreclosure suits that were filed in 2007. From December, 2007 to mid-2010, another 2.3 million homes fell into foreclosure. One expert recently estimated that 8 million homeowners are behind on their mortgages and some 6 million would likely lose their homes within two years, pushing homeownership in the U.S. to its lowest level in 50 years. These financial storms hit Florida with the financial force of a category five hurricane. "
